About the property

Puerto Vallarta, Zona Romantica Ideally Located 2BR/2BA Condo

This lovely luxury condo in the the gated compound of Selva Romantica is located in the heart of Puerto Vallarta's exciting Zona Romantica. Perched on a tranquil wooded mound of lush tropical greenery, it is just steps away from everything you'll need to enjoy for a most memorable vacation! The famous Los Muertos beach is just a short walk down the street and so are dozens of Vallarta's best restaurants, nightclubs, shops and sights. You'll be amazed how far away the city sounds will be from your balcony or enjoying Selva's magnificent tropical garden, with stunning panoramic views of the Bay and the surrounding Sierra Madre mountain range. Swim in the heated salt water infinity pool with its stupendous wall-to wall vista, tone up in the fully equipped gym, relax under the spacious shady palapa... Walk everywhere, no cars or buses needed... The only worry vacationing with us perhaps will be to decide which of many of the next-door attractions to take in during your stay....

Perched on a wooded mound of lush tropical greenery and old trees, including one hundred old banyan tree to greet you at the entrance, this 24 hour security gated compound Selva Romantica (the Romantic Woods) sprawls over a magnificent lush tropical garden, offering stunning 360 degree views of the blue Banderas, the pueblo-like town of Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding Sierra Madre.

Professionally landscaped with tropical flowers and fruit trees - hibiscus, bougainvilleas, jasmine, mangoes, bananas and papayas - enjoy the the heavenly expanse of an infinity pool and swim-up bar - and what a view... the ocean, downtown and the mountains all around! Throw in a cool, shady palapa, a sun deck for sun worshipers, even an air-conditioned gym for the athletic minded... and what do you get? A Paradise of a place just to be in, with birds and butterflies flying around! What's more, in spite of its central location it maintains the ambiance of a small and exclusive setting, providing peace and tranquility, far from the din of the city, the ripping noise of shot mufflers from trucks down the highway, rowdy crowds... For the romantic yet practical visitor, the best of Selva Romantica is Villa Amazonas ! Not only does it straddles the highest point of the hill, but its units are larger and better equipped than those surrounding it. What an idyllic place to be!

Better yet - no coins needed for your laundry - you have washer and drier right inside your suite. And from its windows one can take in the famous Los Arcos marine ecological preserve to the south, to the panoramic city clustered around the famous and beloved crowned church of the Guadalupe. By the way, the unit itself is of understated simple elegance, with the grace of rattan furnishings, bamboo and vertical fabric blinds for privacy yet brightness - all blended in a warm-coloured Mexican décor. A gem within a gem of a place that we're sure you will want to come back to - again and again!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a magical trip from this beautiful condo in Puerto Vallarta. We come to Puerto Vallarta every year during spring break with our son and have stayed at many different places. The condo is situated near everything! When I travel I like to live like a local, so every morning, I went to the bakery literally right down stairs and walked over to the meat market a couple of blocks away. This is only a couple blocks away from the beach and the pier where we caught a boat to Yelapa. The pool is beautiful, we even saw dolphins the one day while overlooking the beautiful infinity pool. The people at the condo were so nice as well. This is close to all of the action, yet you feel secluded and it is very quiet. The condo itself was wonderful and has everything you could think of or need. Celia the owner was wonderful to deal with and so easy to work with. We will come back for sure!

As a owner myself I am very critical of how other owners present their properties.

In this cast we were more then pleased with the translation from photos to reality. The apartment did not disappoint

nor did the site and garden area to say nothing of the fabulous pool! This place is a gem and beautifully taken care of

and a pleasure to live in. The owner was pleasant and easy going and offered great tips for our first time in PV.

We'll be back.... and as owners ourselves, that is all that you can ask for.

Unforgettable Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place...the location unmatched, the comfort exceptional, and the owner's hospitality priceless!

The condo is perfectly situated in the "zona romantica" in PV. It's a close walking distance to the beach, cafes, restaurants & bars, and the main square. I was able to go in-and-out all day without ever using a car or public transportation. In the mornings I would go for an early stroll on the beach, later in the day catch a bite to eat or an ice coffee at one of the many cafes in the area, did some shopping in a couple of boutiques close-by, and at night dine out in a nice restaurant or bistro and walk back with a regular stop at the Malecon.

The condo is clean & well maintained, decorated in good taste, and has all the amenities for short or prolonged stays. It has lots of cross ventilation so we never had to use the ventilators. It has a great view of the swimming pool and is sufficiently high-up that mosquitoes never bothered us even when we left the windows open all night. The outside common area is also very well-kept and pleasant. There are so many beautiful plants everywhere that you almost feel you're in a botanical garden.

This is one of the very few places where you can relax and sunbathe in the swimming pool while looking at the ocean and the downtown simultaneously. This was by far my favorite pastime.

The owner is super nice and very accommodating. We appreciate all her help and graciousness.

This is my second stay in paradise and hope to be back!
